Crews Gaining Ground On North State Wildfires

The Hog Fire west of Susanville has not grown in size. It’s burned 9,564 acres, now with 85% containment. A lot of logging slash and heavy fuels continue to burn within the perimeter of the fire. 2 structures have been destroyed. All evacuations have been lifted. Highway 44 and Highway 36 have reopened.

Some evacuations and road closures remain in effect for the Gold Fire south of Adin in Lassen County. There has been no increase in acreage over the past couple of days, still at 21,870 acres and now with 75% containment. Homes and ranches remain threatened. 13 structures have been destroyed and 5 others damaged. Three firefighters have been injured. Nearly 2000 personnel are on scene.

Several lightning fires are burning in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. Most are very small. The Salmon Fire near Salmon Mountain was has grown about 670 acres. The Bald Fire near Castella is around 23 acres. The Bridge Fire on the south side of O’Brien Mountain at Lake Shasta is contained at 16 acres. Reconnaissance flights continue to search for new starts.

At least 35 fires are known to have been sparked by lightning in the Klamath National Forest. 7 fires are out. 22 are currently in patrol status or contained. The largest is the 50 acre Little Soda Fire near Happy Camp.

There was very little spread Wednesday on the Caldwell Fire straddling the Modoc/Siskiyou County line near Canby, but a lot of active fire continues inside the 81,600 acre perimeter of the so-called “July Complex” of 4 fires. Overall containment is at 45% and many evacuations have been lifted, but many others remain in effect. An unknown number of structures have been destroyed. To the southeast of that fire complex, there are at least 22 other smaller fires burning in the Modoc National Forest, ranging in size from a single tree to a thousand acres.
